There is no better time to experience New Hampshire than in the fall. The hiking is perfect…spectacular colors, warm air with just enough of a chill to be comfortable, and best of all no bugs! If you are looking for a family friendly hike, Mount Cardigan is a great choice. It is officially labeled an “easy hike,” but the rocky trail provides enough of a challenge to promote a good work-out. For hikers with children (or those taking a leisurely stroll) the trek up will take about an hour. Take heart though, the views are worth every moment!
